Retirement of James W. Neton Ph.D., C.H.P., DCAS Associate Director of Science

April 23, 2019

We would like to extend best wishes to Dr. James Neton on his retirement from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Division of Compensation Analysis and Support (DCAS). Dr. Neton has worked at NIOSH for the past 20 years. He joined the DCAS team as a Technical Program Manager in 2001 and was promoted to Associate Director for Science in 2004. He oversaw the scientific development of dose reconstruction methods and risk models for workers exposed to sources of ionizing radiation that form the basis of compensation decisions made under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) of 2000. Dr. Neton also participated in the development and maintenance of the NIOSH Interactive RadioEpidemiological Program (NIOSH-IREP), an interactive computer software application that determines probability of causation. In addition, he supervised a multi-disciplinary team of technical, administrative, and contract personnel and worked closely with the Department of Labor and Department of Energy to ensure program goals were met. We are indebted to his leadership, scientific contributions, and commitment to excellence. We wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.
